I think they've used AUD patches occasionally before....the 7-31-71 Dark Star for instance, and wasn't there one for the 10-21-78 Stella as well? (But yes, sometimes they do 'snips' too, especially in the early DPs.)

Anyway, I believe 5-15-70 is one of those dates which have TWO sources - the Dead have their own tapes, and the Fillmore crew was also secretly taping. I think the secret Fillmore reels are the ones that circulated. So (aside from the missing songs) there shouldn't be any cuts.

I dunno, I don't remember an aud patch on the 7/31 Dark Star, I'll have to pull that one out. You're probably right.

I did not get any of the official releases of the October 78 shows, couldn't tell ya about that.

Oh yeah, I forgot, the circulating 5/15/70 is from different, non-vault reels. Are they the same mix, I wonder? Same feed, different deck?

I keep meaning to see if the patch was covered in the PITBand from the new patched version of Miller's 12/19/73 (the first example of a "snip" on an official release, perhaps? there are others but I can't think of them now). We were all so focused on the missing bass solo that I think we all forgot about the reel flip in Playin'. In both cases, from listening to the DP I had no clue there was anything missing. It was only a couple years ago when I first heard the aud that I noticed the missing bass solo and patched it in myself.
